AUCKLAND - Manu Vatuvei and Shaun Johnson nabbed two of the game's three hat-tricks as a rampant Warriors kept their NRL play-off hopes alive with a 50-16 hammering of Canberra.
Vatuvei took just nine minutes to get his first-half treble.
Johnson eclipsed that by requiring seven minutes to complete his in the second spell.
He also landed seven goals for a match haul of 26 points.
In all, the Warriors scored nine tries to three as they closed the door on Canberra's own finals ambitions, compounding the Raiders' off-field dramas of the past week and a half.
However, the visitors did have the last say, centre Jarrod Croker finishing off his own hat-trick three minutes from time.
Both teams were battling to keep their seasons alive and it was a tight encounter before the Warriors made it one-way traffic from late in the opening spell.
